Sash Window Specialist – Heritage Window Contractor

Parliament House, Western Australia. 

As a specialist heritage window contractor we had already completed phase 1 and 2 of sash window renovation work at parliament house in Perth, Western Australia.  In phase 3 we undertake refurbishment of the central library sash windows.

Harvest Terrace elevation windows are having replica replacement sash frames installed.  Glazed with energy efficient (low-e) acoustic laminate glass.  Sustainable Fijian Mahogany timber is used to craft the replacement sashes.

The inner courtyard windows are being draught sealed and restored.  These sash windows include a mix of the 3 main balances systems – acme tape balances, spring balances and the traditional cord and pulley.

Rotten window frames and sills and are repaired.

Replacement Low-E, Sound Proofed Sash Frames

Repair Existing Box Window Frames

First, all paint and decayed wood is scraped away, back to solid timber.  A runny liquid epoxy is used as the first primer coat.  This coating sinks into all the cracks and grooves ensuring that the following thicker coats gain maximum adhesion.  Once the required layers are built up and cured they are carved and sanded to a finish.

This commercial restoration project was undertaken by Perth Sash Window Specialist as a heritage window contractor direct to Parliament House Perth WA.
